Description
Dominica Sea turtle Conservation Organization, originally started as ROSTI, has been focused on sea turtle conservation in Dominica. A small island in the Caribbean, Dominica has several sea turtle species nesting on it's beaches. Leatherbacks have been the main focus due tp poaching on the island of adults and nests. DomSeTCO supports patrollers on the main leatherback nesting beaches and has initiated a sea turtle tour program bringing visitors and locals alike to witness sea turtle nesting events on the island. DomSeTCO also participates in IFAW's Floating Classroom Program, bringing sea turtle conservation to the classroom.
